Started an ignored thread on this the day it was released.
It lacks imagination, the logos look odd and it doesn't fit with the BBC header as well. All shows have lost individual personality, and we can only see the last three songs played. I feel like it works well for BBC Local stations, but R1 & 1Xtra needs special attention on their web presence if they want to stay ahead of the crowd.
Monitoring the Twitter response to it; seems overwhelmingly positive.
I liked 'Dear Scott' with the Posh Radio 4 Lady. Whatever happened to that? I think it was just quietly dropped. I agree with the above posts regarding Real or No Real - it is one of the best feature that Scott has done. Especially when Greg or Charlie plays, the off-topic stories that get shared are comedy gold!
With regards to Beccy, I think she has left Radio 1 and is focussing on BBC projects elsewhere. Her Twitter bio mentions she does 'radio and strategy and stuff for the BBC' and I agree, she is still very much missed on the show.
Seeing as this spambot bumped this thread up, I thought I'd make a montage of a few occasions Greg used the Porter Robinson instrumental to start the show.
I have the first use of it from the 3rd May 2012, then 23rd July 2012 (Greg's first show after Chris Moyles announced he was leaving, to add context to it), 14th September 2012, 7th January 2012 and the last use of it on 9th May 2014.
I wouldn't normally go anywhere near the shitfest that is The Sun, but I came across this article from a few years back: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/175199/Lard-Ive-left-my-Mark.html
Quite sad to hear, it essentially says that Mark and Lard aren't actually friends and they never want to work together ever again. Sad times. It always makes me sad when something I look back on fondly is dismissed by the person (or people) who made it happen. Women do it to me all the time.
I kid, of course. That would imply I've ever got anywhere with a woman.
